, at the white house the president will be meeting with the german chancellor angela merkel. his issues likely to come up in a news conference with reporters. the president is hosting the german chancellor for a working lunch and an oval office meeting. those nsa phone taps the situation in ukraine are also subject to dominate the conversation. we want to begin with the issue of benghazi because it has come front and center yet again. this morning inside the "the wall street journal" -- meanwhile, "the hill" newspaper has an item. one of the e-mails details national security advisor -- senator lindsey graham of south carolina calls roads e-mail a smoking gun that proves the white house tried to spin the facts at of the presidential election. that e-mail just part of the story. course hearing by house republicans and the house oversight committee. overseeing what was happening in north africa and the middle east. this is part of the opening statement. the chairman of that committee california republican darrell issa. >> some of the documents which were brought to light only days ago through a f
back and push back against the run. during merkel's visit in two thousand and eleven. us president obama seemed in control of the foreign policy front. thanks to a decisive lead intervention. now they're both talking conservative cross fire allegedly too hesitant to recruit new news clips that i am very very disappointed in with both us and european level of pushback on russia they have tried to be measured and each time goodness spurned their generosity and gone further and i think they mowed both psychologically personally now may be it a point. they might be ready to do something. military intervention by the west seems unthinkable. the only scenario to ramp up the pressure sanctions against all sectors of the russian economy the situation in ukraine is threatening to overshadow her goals and targets the school board at the chance to speak at the u s chamber of commerce about a more positive issue. the planned free trade agreement between the us and eu the friends of the potentially biggest free trade area in the world are hoping that merkel's visit will be imposed for the compl
merkel in this process? >> she is critical to any european response. there needs to be a transatlantic, response, and in fact, i would argue proactive steps not even just responding but on the european side of the relationship, germany is the key player. let me talk a little bit about the state department told us earlier this week, that there in juneson with the e.u., but you know, there are real erequests about whether or not germany and the united states and the e.u. are all together on this, what do you think. >> right. >> i think you have to look at it in difference pieces. in terms of the analysis, this is clear russian aggression against a neighbor, intervening militarily, we have exactly the same analysis. the difference is begin to come up is what do you do about it. the quite is willing to go down the road of very tough sanctions against them in order to create some pain on the russian economy. and putin directly to get him to want to change the policies. >> what else -- >> go ahead. >> with the union is not so sure about putting in place the tough sanctions. they feel a plow
a lot of energy, germany, angela merkel one of her big problems is that her country really likes the energy coming out of russia. >> that's true. it's up to the united states and the west. we have plenty of energy resources. all we have to do is start using them intelligently. and reduce the dependency of western europe on russian gas. >> see, i see it as even a larger issue in that, you know, while all the focus is on ukraine and what he is doing there is that last year when president obama drew the red line with syria and that back fired and he sort of outsourced and ling the chemical weapons in syria to putin, putin then was supposedly going to help us. now we hear that there is chlorine gas used about a month ago against civilians. it sounds like either we are foolish or there has been some double dealing or whatever. i see that sort of inroads in syria and a bigger problem for israel and sort of expanding in the region. that's what i see is even a larger issue. >> it's even bigger thansrki that in my view. the problem is you you know you can -- if you go back through frankl
chancellor angela merkel will meet with president obama at the white house later this week. on monday, russia's defense minister assured chuck hagel that russia will not invade ukraine. ukraine's acting president urged lawmakers today in kiev to quickly adopt a new constitution he says could preserve unity. militants continue to hold dozens of hostages, including seven military observers. on monday evening there were violent clashes in donetsk after the militia attacked demonstrators during a unity rally. jim maceda was at that rally and joins us live from donetsk. jim, you have been covering this from the beginning and it appears as though the violence, the tension continues to just escalate. is that a fair assessment? >> reporter: yeah, kristen, i would say that the fair assessment is that this region is always teetering on violence. it's on the edge of anarchy and it could go either way. you referred to the demonstration last night. we were there, as you said. it started out very peacefully in downtown donetsk. this was not a group of neo-nazis as all the russian state media have been repo
not forgotten world war ii. but russia wants to start world war iii. merkel also voiced concern. the german chancellor held crisis talks with the polish counterpart and spoke on the phone to other western leaders. >> russia has the ability to put the separatist on the peaceful path. debating the constitution and preparing for elections. no indication of them doing that. several former soviet country offered to mediate in the crisis as russia continued to build up its military along ukraine's border. thousands of portuguese turned out to mark the 40th anniversary of the countries carnation revolution. in 1974, a military coup turned into a popular uprising. it paved the way for democracy and portugal which had been ruled by dictators since the 1930's. aftervolution was named the carnations that people stop into the barrels of soldiers guns on that landmark day. that was the week inó?ó?ó?ó?ó?
was of great interest to me because i just read that little quick in the china daily news about angela merkel not letting ping go to the holocaust site because of abe's position, and how much do they really dislake the japanese? >> the cold war line if your attacked by germany and russia, who do you shoot first? the answer was, germany, business before pleasure. not a very nice cold war story. >> ooh! >> that's hard to -- obviously these attitudes go way back and are very deep and action sir bait -- exacerbated by world war ii and nobody has been prepared to tell the entire truth about, forth ruthly in the region so it does have an overhang i think matters quite a lot. it means that the koreans and others are
what angle a merkel has to say much more than what the obama administration has to say. they're also going along with small targeted sanctions, but the stakes are a lot higher for europeans. russia's strength with europe is ten times russia's strength with the u.s. >> schieffer: he could also cut off the gas. >> he could cut off the gas and that might not seem as much of a problem as we go into spring and summer but come into winter he has the ability to make it very, very cold indeed, especially northern europe. so they, i think, would like to take little baby steps along the way and hope that that will have an impact. they seem to be comfortable with the americans going harder and harsher, but i don't think that that will change putin's calculus. yes, the russian stock market is down. yes, the -- it hasn't changed putin's posture a notch. so it's going to take something of the order of getting russians out of swift which is this interbanking deal that allows banks to trade currencies with each other. if you take russia out of that union, then all of russia's banks immediately go in
. further is the fact that as the german chancellor angela merkel said she thinks putin is divorced from reality. that's a huge danger here. yopg he would make an end run for kiev. however, nato told us he could invade and take over eastern ukraine in three to five days. they are not ready to take on the russian military. we have a piece about all the reasons that putin should not want to go into ukraine, including the fact that the insurgency will cost lives. that doesn't mean putin will be dissuaded from invasion of eastern ukraine for those reasons. >> this is what we learn about putin. he's not a rational, logical guy. he's not thinking about the interests of his own people. he's thinking about the elite. his government, and him staying in power. this is how he's been reasoning. and if you read any of the books about even george w. bush, days of fire, and there's a quote by george w. bush himself who said, you know, i don't understand this guy. he seems like -- i thought that he was a liberator. you know, he's showing a side of him as if he is more and more a dictator. if he takes ea
